Amsterdam: Heading In File

logo

Amsterdam the capital of the Netherlands is spread over an area of 219.32km2. Personally, when talking about Amsterdam, the first thing with which I relate it to is my favorite teenage writer Anne Frank’s hideout, which has now been turned into the Anne Frank museum along with the most commonly spoken languages Dutch.

Many of the famous companies have their EU headquarters in Amsterdam, which includes Netflix, Uber and even the world’s oldest stock exchange. We absolutely couldn’t forget the nightlife like Melkweg, Paradiso and the festival activities held here along with the strings of museums especially around Museum Plein- beating heart of culture.

What to do here?

But when talking about drinks and beers it would be a good idea to visit De Gooyer-one of the eight remaining windmills where you get to taste standard as well as seasonal ales.

Who doesn’t like shopping and for the absolute shopaholics we recommend visiting The Nine Streets are the perfect go, with numerous retailer selling fine items just like in Haarlemmerdijk and Czaarpeterstraat.

In case you happen to be visiting around spring, then it would a good idea to visit the unique worlds only floating flower market.

This place also has some serious partying lifestyle, the trippy marijuana that is legal and 24/7 bars that never sees emptiness. Definitely they would suggest you to stay away, especially as a first time traveler. Instead, get in some free walking tours and spend time in parks for serenity and an opportunity to meet new people.

Just like almost anywhere on this planet, it’s the best to use your naturally gifted tires aka legs for moving around nearby places, hire vehicles or simply get on trains/buses.

One of the things that should be noted while being here are the crazily high withdrawal fees that are charged even on the smallest transaction. Hence avoid taking out money in small bunches very frequently.

Things that can be done when around Amsterdam are, exploring water boats and canals, visiting museums and Peaceful strolls down parks like Vondel Park. Do note that Amsterdam can be reached via flights at the Schipol Airport connects all major cities in Europe and from across the world.
